How to Wrap your text in Word (Around Images) Instantly

If you don’t know how to wrap your words in word (around images), you’re going to have problems.   Your document is not going to have the look you had in mind. In the end, you will have to send it with a lackluster presentation. This will, in turn, leave a tepid impression on your recipient. Although not necessary but knowing how to center a photo in word, and resizing images can help you better perform this tutorial.

But there’s no need to fret!

I love including illustrations, images, and all kinds of graphics in my word documents. And I’ve kinda become an expert at it.

Before we dive into the actual process of wrapping text, here are some things you need to know.

Different Ways You Can Wrap your Text Around Pictures

Microsoft Word gives you many different options to wrap text around an image. Some of them are given below.

  • In-Line with text

In this orientation, the text is wound around your image in a way that it runs against its toe-end. In line with text wrap

  • Tight

The text is tightly squeezed against your image if you choose this option. tight wrap

  • Behind the Text

The text runs inside the image, visible and occupying a frontal position.behind the text wrap

  • In front of the text

The text runs behind your image and isn’t visible if its background is not front of the text wrap

Some other options are:

  • Square (the text is squared and justified next to your image)

  • Top and bottom (text is placed below and above your image)

  • Through: (The text cuts through your picture)

Note: As you can see, these wraps don’t work with every image, so you will have to make a decision on your own depending upon the nature of your image.
